has Biden committed to bringing Justice to Trump?

I'm just wondering because if Trump actually gets away with all this I don't know if I can handle that.....
He deserves to lose everything and spend the rest of his life in prison as does most of his advisors, administration and family....

2. Trump is going to get away with all of it

Prepare now. The best we can do is removing him from the office where he can no longer do damage.

17. No it doesn't. The VP would not make such a decision...the AG would or the President

5. I hope not. That would just make the repubs cheat even more.

We already have a nominee, he doesn’t need to make promises that would make it harder to win.

6. I don't want anyone to ask him

that question. I think it needs to be left alone until it's time to bring down the hammer.

8. What do you want Biden to do when in office ? Democrats need to win big

everywhere to be able to do things.

15. Presidents Don't Prosecute Their Predecessors

<snip>

"When Thomas Jefferson succeeded John Adams, a contest that put America on such a different footing that it is remembered today as the Revolution of 1800, he did not seek to put members of the Adams administration on trial. When Warren G. Harding followed Woodrow Wilson in the White House in 1921, he did not put Edith Galt Wilson on trial for usurping the office of the presidency after Wilson's stroke. When Bill Clinton ended a dozen years of Republican rule in 1993, he did not try to prosecute Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush for deceiving the Congress over the Iran-Contra affair.

In the span of 220 years there have been 43 changes of presidents, and always this rule, never written but never broken, has prevailed: Presidents let their predecessors be judged by the merciless jury of history, not by the temporal verdicts of courts.

Commentators and historians often apply a facile shorthand to describe the fundamental principle (and surpassing greatness) of the American political system: Here the transfer of power from one party to another, or from one president to another, is accomplished by ballots, not bullets. That shorthand has an unspoken corollary: Here presidents and parties do not criminalize the policies of their predecessors.'

<snip>

'The pre-eminent point here is that in the United States, sitting presidents and winning political parties don't sit in legal judgment of their predecessors. If they do not like their policies, and many times they do not, they change policies. They do not sue their predecessors nor seek to punish them legally. This custom has prevailed in times of severe crisis as much as in serene times.'

18. Honestly I am way more interested in fixing health care, saving the economy, tax reform and

student loan help...just a few. What will we waste important days on vengeance? The attorney general will decide and states would be the best place to go after Donnie.

13. One hopes his misdeeds keep him in the courts for the rest of his life...but if Biden made a big

Deal about it, it might drive away voters who want a steady, stable executive right now.

16. Let's win the election. And Biden is going to have to save the economy and American

citizens from the pandemic first. The AG will determine what happens to Trump and criminal GOP types. Also it would b stupid to announce this either way.
